A parked car exploded near a hospital in Baghdad's main Shi'ite district on Saturday as a series of bombings killed at least 10 people and wounded dozens in Iraq, police said. The blast in Sadr City occurred about 10:30 a.m. and was targeting street vendors and pedestrians near the hospital. Police said at least five people were killed and 15 wounded. Another parked car bomb struck a gas station an hour earlier in the Shi'ite city of Hillah killing at least two people and wounding 22, provincial police said. The city has been the site of some of the deadliest blasts since the war started, including a double suicide bombing that killed 120 people on March 6. In northern Iraq, a car exploded about 7 a.m. after the driver parked it near Iraqis looking for work in the center of Tuz Khormato, 210 kilometers north of Baghdad. The driver and two workers were killed and 11 others wounded in the attack, police Col. Abbas Mohammed Amin said.
